    Well, from a Christian perspective, evolution and creation are mutually exclusive, and the Bible specifies that the world was created by God. However, there are plenty of other faults in evolutionary theory that he could bring up.

    FROM THE REVIEW:
    ''Like if a pastor falls into corruption or becomes dishonest or greedy: it's heartbreaking because even secular people want godly people to be authentically godly.''


    But isnt teaching the Biblical message of creation "authentically godly"?

    That ENTIRE review is so much trash, elitism at its worst/best.

    Since when does teaching someone anything limit their intellectual capacities?

    If your argument was accurate, then teaching people that evolution and creationism is wrong is just as limiting to their intellectual capacities.

    Teaching people a certain principle or subject never limits their intellectual abilities. The only thing that does is willfully choosing not to learn.

    Personally, i couldn't care less about this so call creation v. evolution debate. You find that both theories have numerous areas in common. In fact, I think belief in evolution requires even more faith in a Divine Creator. The odds are astronomical otherwise.

    I'd just like to know why Liberalogic seems to use the word, "scared"? What is endangering, if creationism is taught exclusively to these kids?

    When these kids grow up, they will have the opportunity to weigh "evolution" and evaluate it. For the time being when they are young and under the direction of their parents, this is what Mom and Pop Christian desire for their kids to be taught.

    If Liberalogic is so concerned, how about he/she check out what American Islamic schools are teaching the little one's who are going to be American adult voters, movers, and shakers one day.

    Some of the greatest scientists of the past and present were biblical Christians.............Their faith didn't limit their ability to use their God given minds and potential to great measure..........

    The ceation argument needs evolution to succeed, the evolution argument, needs only its own evidence.

    Intelligent design is an argument that basically says:
    This place is soooo crazy! I can't even fathom how it all could've happened without some god doing it. My rudimentary human brain couldn't have created anything this complex, so the next rung up on the latter must an omnipotent god who created the universe!

    Sorry, I was banned for a while.

    Off the top of my head, evolution theory cannot account for:

    1. The rise of life from non-life, or
    2. The existence of irreducibly complex organs/machines in cells.

    1) This metaphysical issue is not part of evolutionary theory.
    2) Irreducible Complexity requires an unfounded presumption.
